I'm Home!

Thank you all for all of your well wishes you've left me over the last week. I was able to check my email with my cell phone from the hospital and each time I heard from my blogging community, it made me smile!

I've been home for a few days now, and am finally feeling up to turning on the laptop. I didn't have the energy to chronicle my experience while in the hospital, but would like to attempt to do that over the next few days, so bare with me. I may get into too much detail, but what is a blog without the details, and what's MY blog without WAY too many details?

For now I will leave you with this bit of info.... The phlebotomists that work the graveyard shift at the hospital I was at are HOT and they all hit their mark on the first stick every time, painlessly. They also use very corny pick-up lines like, "Didn't I draw from you last night?", and "Oh no, I'm sure I did, I'd remember a vein like yours".
6am blood draws are always a little easier from cute, young men in lab coats.

Yaay! I'm so glad. I've been clicking and clicking and worrying. I'll continue the good wishes for a speedy recovery. Take care.

Man, that would make the blood taking so worthwhile!

Welcome home and I'm so glad you getting better!

I wonder if it was painless because they were so cute? ;)

I'm so glad you're doing well!!! Yes, there is nothing like a hottie to draw your blood. I always get some old nurse. I want a hottie to draw my blood damnit! ;)

Ginger said...

So glad to hear that you are home and with a sense of humor! I can't wait to hear all of the sordid details!

Gina said...

Good to hear you are doing ok!

And man, I get my blood drawn (at the minimum) every six weeks, and all my phlebotomists are women! Where, where are the hot young men? Take me to your hospital, stat!

Welcome home, Cherry Berry! I missed you! I hope you're catching up on "Arrested Development!" :) Get well soon, my friend!

Welcome home! Glad to see that you're back at home, and well enough to enjoy hotties in lab coats LOL! That would certainly take the sting away.
During my IVF treatments the worst part was the blood draws as the female phlebomist was not the greatest, also not in the best mood most times - always took at least 2 stabs, and left my arms so black and blue. All of us in the waiting room were constantly waiting with dread.
Don't rush your recovery, take it nice and easy as it's quite major surgery. I look forward to getting caught up with you through your chronicles.

Yay! Glad you're home and feeling okay :) Rest up and take it easy...and you'll recover nicely :) Gosh, that sounded really stupid when I read it again. You know what I mean though, right?

Anyway, looking forward to more of your posts! Hopefully we'll hear how much that wonderful husband of yours is pampering you as you recover! ;) xo
